Professional statement

Renee Booker is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located in Mandeville, LA. Renee is passionate about working with individuals who suffer from depression, anxiety, or grief. These mental health conditions may lead to harmful behaviors like substance abuse or toxic relationship patterns, and may be the result of experiences of trauma or intense distress. Renee’s clients feel emotions like worry, sadness, and emotional exhaustion. They find periods of change extremely difficult and can’t find effective ways of coping.



Renee utilizes several effective therapy approaches when it comes to helping her clients. Her goal is to support individuals as they develop a life more worth living, one that is authentic, engaging, comfortable, and joyful. Clients discuss in session their values, talking about what’s important to them. Renee then helps them put these values into action, making changes to align their lives to what guides their decisions. Clients also benefit from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness practices, becoming more aware of their thoughts and feelings, including bodily sensations. They learn how to manage their emotions, particularly when they begin to feel distressed.



Renee earned a Master’s degree in Social Work from Southern University at New Orleans. She has over 10 years of experience as a therapist and enjoys working with individuals of all backgrounds and identities. Often, her work with clients benefits not only them but their relationships with loved ones, strengthening their bonds with others in healthy ways. Clients learn how to understand themselves and their feelings, which can help them feel more whole.
